​Rosetta Institute of Biomedical Research
California, online

We provide advanced classes for high achieving high school students interested in pursuing a career in medicine or related fields, such as biomedical research, drug development, pharmacy or nursing. We offer several workshops – Molecular Biology of Cancer, Molecular Neuroscience, Molecular Immunology, Medicinal Chemistry, Covid-19: Biology/Immunity/Medicine, Molecular Biology of Aging, Bioinformatics and Biomedical Research – that are taught by PhD-level instructors with years of research and teaching experience.  Through engaging lectures and hands-on laboratory classes, students learn normal molecular and cellular biology, and then learn how these normal processes are disrupted or distorted during the development of disease. Workshops are offered in fall, winter and summer, both online and in-person.

More broadly, workshop attendees make friends from around the world, strengthen their academic skills, and experience college dorm life in a safe environment.

Residential students are housed in on-campus undergraduate dorms in doubles, triples or quads, and eat in campus dining facilities. Teaching assistants/residential advisors live with the students and are available to mentor and assist the students. In addition, the camp directors are on-site 24 hours/day. Overall, we maintain a student to staff ratio that is better than the universities require.

We offer Fall/Winter/Summer camps on multiple topics related to molecular medicine, both online and in-person.  Our summer camps include Molecular Biology of Cancer, Molecular Neuroscience, Molecular Immunology, Molecular Biology of Aging, Bioinformatics of Cancer, Medicinal Chemistry and Biomedical Research.  Summer workshops are held at UC Berkeley, UC San Diego and at our facility in Alameda, CA.  Residential, commuter and online options are all available.  Fall/winter workshops (online or in Alameda, CA) are online or commuter-only and include Covid-19: Biology/Immunity/Medicine (online in November), Biomedical Research (winter break and February), Medicinal Chemistry (online during winter break) and Medical and Translational Bioinformatics (online or in-person during winter break).
